U.S. goal that beat the Russians, 1980
February 22, 1980 - U.S. goal that beat the Russians. This is the goal that churned up the Lake Placid crowd into a turbulent sea of widly jubilant spectators as the U.S. Olympic hockey team held off the Soviets for a sensational 4-3 upset victory Friday night in a final-round game of the tournament. Mike Eruzione scores the fourth and final goal for the Americans as Russian goalie Vladimir Myshkin watches the puck hit the net. Vasili Peruchin is too late in his bid to block the play.
